    bristolram reacted to admira in Stone Roses chant   
    This song is starting to annoy me in that it includes the name of a player who has never played for us and probably never will. So how about a tribute to Captain Fantastic instead? This flows just as well:
    Lampard’s at the wheel,
    Tell me how good does it feel,
    We’ve got Wilson and Richard Keogh,
    Martin Waghorn scoring the goals,
    Duh duh duh duuuhhh duh duh duh duh duuuhhh

    Forgive me if I'm wrong on this, and please correct me if I am, but isn't the scenario effectively as follows:
    Mel Morris owns Derby as a company Mel Morris also owns a separate company Derby used to own the stadium as an asset Derby have sold the stadium to Mel's other company Derby now make no money off the stadium and have lost it's worth as an asset from their accounts Mel's other company now makes the money from the stadium, but must also provide for it's upkeep The money made from the other company cannot just be pumped back into Derby, either directly as the stadium-owning company is a separate entity to Derby, or indirectly through Mel as there are limits put in place by the governing bodies on the level of investment an owner can make into a club As such Mel's ownership of both companies is irrelevant as they are separate entities with restrictions in place to stop the free flow of money between them Because if that's right, then I can't really see any difference between what Derby have done and what countless other clubs have done when they have sold their ground to other parties, and can't really understand why it should be stopped or how it could be stopped. I don't see selling an asset to another company as a "dodge" of the rules just because the owner owns that other company when he's restricted to what he can invest from that other company into Derby.
    If there's something I'm missing here though, then please someone run it by me.

    In reference to a poster who I don't even want to quote.
    If we sack Frank, we'll get the same disingenuous rubbish from posters on here about how they're willing to give managers time, when quite often they're the first to call for the manager out after a bad spell.
    We're 8th with a rookie manager, that's pretty good going for his first year in the job. Norwich could have sacked Farke last year, but they actually stuck with their manager and are profiting. 
    At what point are we as fans going to accept there is no magical appointment out there that is going to overnight turn us into a premier league team, and that it takes time and effort to transition into one of those.

    Really, there's nothing much around the ground. You're not far from the City Centre - If you have map of southampton, if you find Oxford Street there is a car park around there and its the old city conservation area so has bars, restaurants etc and within about a 20 min walk of the ground.
    Or theres the city centre itself which again is about a 20 minute walk - theres a concentration of bars and some older style pubs in the Bedford Place area.
    And if you're coming by train and getting off at Soton Central, the signs to the City Centre should take you to Above Bar Street (about 0.5 mile to the south of Bedford Place) which has another collection of largely chain pubs like Slug and Lettuce, Yates' etc
    Good luck mate!

    bristolram reacted to TheresOnlyWanChope in Carson appreciation thread (Crazy Carson hating)   
    Seen a lot of negativity around Carson recently- distribution and performance yesterday. My view - distribution is ok, he tends to look for a man in wide areas which can set us off in attack. Sometimes it goes out for a throw or goes wrong and plays the opposition in. Recently he plays it safe and passes short more than often to Keogh or someone. 
    But yesterday maybe the first one was saveable ( you would expect Ince to score the second) but everyone has off days and Carson has been unbelievable for us the last few seasons. He’s saved us on so many occasions. A great shot stopper, maybe he needs competition but still an incredible keeper and one of best I’ve seen at Derby. If anyone doesn’t believe me, search for Carson best saves on YouTube. He’s won us so many points. 
    Lets get behind him and the team. Maybe we need a Carson chant. He’s an excellent keeper.
